Invitation for Expression of Interests

Centre for Sustainable Livelihoods of Institute of Rural Management Anand (CSL-IRMA) entered into an agreement with the NHPC to work on promoting collective enterprises for livelihood augmentation in Dhemaji and  Lakhimpur district of Assam. This project envisages active participation of NHPC, partner organizations, and communities. The project also envisages identifying sector based value chains, climate resilient livelihood opportunities by creating productive assets to be owned by the communities. While NHPC has plans to support the project based interventions to be jointly planned with CSL-IRMA, it would be the endeavour of the project team to encourage government agencies and local communities to contribute keeping in view the convergence of various sector specific development schemes. The project further envisages that interventions would be time bound and agents would withdraw. Withdrawal strategy involves training and capacity building of collective enterprises promoted, and linking these enterprises to sustainable supply chains.
